Another success healthy cookie that doesn’t taste like it is healthy………. WE LOVE IT

This cookie recipe is going to become one of our ultimate favorite. What to love about it? Besides the amazing flavor? Well….

a) The fact that it doesn’t taste like a healthy cookie
b) The cookie batter can be altered to make different versions such as replacing some of the whole wheat pastry flour for cocoa powder, adding nuts, adding other types of fruits etc
c) The fact that the recipe its super simple

For all of these reasons I think this recipe is a super winner so I hope that you try it soon and if you do let me know how you like it!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two cookie sheets with unbleached parchment paper.

In a medium bowl whisk oil, sugar, egg and vanilla. Add flour, flax, oats, baking soda, chocolate chips and cranberries and combine. I do this step simply with my rubber spatula.

Drop rounded scoops onto a lined cookie sheet and bake for 10 to 12 minutes.

Cool in the cookie sheet for 1-2 minutes and transfer to a wire rack.

  1. I guess I can say that I’ve already tasted these and loved them. But I’m with you, I prefer them with the peanut butter / coconut layer and more chocolate! :)

    And an A-? That’s awesome!

  2. Miryam,
    These look so good! And I love the fact that they’re made with healthier ingredients. You’re setting a great example for those of us who tend to do pretty traditional baking of sweets!
